What did you wear?

So Im taking a casual poll as to what most women choose to wear to labor in. With my 1st son I wore a poly cotton blk mid thigh length tank night gown. Know I know 99.9 % of most woman end up in the buff when hard labor and delivery starts ( as I did too!).And those hospital gowns are not an option for me, I even but it in my birth plan! dont ask me to but that on its not going to happen..haha! But I think its important to have a special gown or shirt that you don't wear until that moment you know your laboring. I choose not to wash the gown I wore when I was in labor with Brix, I still have it unwashed in a special "baby" box along with a large piece of hair that I cut before I washed that day out of my hair.

Im am thinking with this baby I am going to opt for a tank cami with a built in bra, what did you wear when you labored??

Amy Butler organic towels!

These arrived today (thanks mom!)Lime and Orange 1st and 3rd from left to right!! They look great in my newly painted bathrooms....err uh ... well one down one to go. Im also finished with my Franklin Goose swim diaper orders!!! all in all I think I made close to 50. Although I wasn't able to attend the Tiffany open house at The VMFA I did receive this..

7 more weeks to go, Im hoping he waits until the end of the 1st week of August to arrive, I stop working the 2nd week of July so that will give mw a nice two weeks to relax and sew some diapers for him!! I really like this newborn pattern..
